bargains are always close at hand BikeBandit.com AMA Vintage Motorcycle Days,
featuring the riders and champions of Husqvarna, and the massive vintage

On this mid-summer weekend, BikeBandit.com AMA Vintage Motorcycle Days will
host one of the largest swap meets ever at Mid-Ohio Sports Car Course in
Lexington, Ohio, as hundreds of vendors and thousands of buyers converge at the
largest celebration of motorcycle heritage in the country.
"For many attendees, the swap meet is the top draw at AMA Vintage
Motorcycle Days," said AMA Vice President of Operations Jeff Massey.
"It's downright huge, taking up about 20 acres of property at Mid-Ohio
Sports Car Course. The key is you never know where in those 20 acres you'll

Massey added that vender applications indicate this will be one of the biggest
AMA Vintage Motorcycle Days swap meets in recent history.
"We've made a number of improvements the last few years to increase the
presentation of the swap meet," Massey said. "Enhancements have
focused on traffic flow, increasing the space, adding display options and more.
We're also doing more to help our shoppers find the parts they need with
additional signage and direction at the swap meet's head tent, which sits at
the main north entrance to the swap meet."
Vendors can purchase swap meet space on location on a first-come, first-served
basis. In addition to access to a huge crowd of vintage enthusiasts, vendors
will be invited to the vendor-only picnic, sponsored by Mid-Ohio Sports Car
Course. For additional vendor information, see www.amavintagemotorcycledays.com> Vendor And Swap Meet Info.
